/ NHL.com Correspondent
RALEIGH, N.C. -- The nerves were at their worst during the national anthem, Charlie Lindgren said. And it didn't help when the first shot he faced in the NHL wound up in the back of the net.
But Lindgren, making his NHL debut for the Montreal Canadiens just two weeks after finishing his college career, settled down and stopped 26 shots in a 4-2 win against the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena on Thursday.
